The Latin American and Caribbean Chapter (LACC) of the World Aquaculture Society and the Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral, ESPOL, announce the new
date for Latin American and Caribbean Aquaculture 2020 and CEA2020 in the city of Guayaquil. The LACQUA20 and the Ecuadorian Congress of Aquaculture 2020 (CEA 2020) will change to March 22-25, 2021 for reasons of force majeure.


As we know, the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has had an effect on events and travel worldwide. For us, the most important thing is the health, well-being and safety of all attendees, collaborators and the organizing team. Many countries have traveler restrictions and have suspended events with large crowds. This is why the Organizing Committee of LACQUA20 and CEA20 makes the previously mentioned decision.

Please note that all events and sessions planned for LACQUA20 and CEA20 continue as planned, there will only be the change in date. Abstracts submitted to
date will continue to be evaluated by the Program Committee and entries will continue to be valid. The deadline for abstract submission is extended until
December 1, 2021. Don’t forget that the call is already open and you can submit your abstract at the following link  


The reservation of your stand will continue to be recognized. The event coordinators will shortly send the exhibitors manual with all the specifications and new dates. If you have made an accommodation reservation, please contact the hotel directly.
